Internet Influencers ????
« on: May 02, 2024, 09:33:09 PM »
There's something about the internet.  If it's on it, then it must be true.  NOT  :D

There is a lot of information available and given that there are some people who really do represent that information and making it available to others.

Then there's those internet influencers who merely entertain and regurgitate the information in a misrepresented way.  What is up with all these people online doing youtube unboxing of fishing equipment and then giving their in depth review.  People talking about Diawa and Shimano and don't even know the real difference when it comes down to it.  Yes there will always be a fanboy of a certain manufacture, but do they really know what they're talking about or just throwing words written down somewhere by someone else.

People can't even get their parts descriptions correct like, rotor, pinion gear, level wind, ARB, etc.,...now they just throwing words out there in their vids.

I guess I get bored sometimes...

The real villain is looking at you.  The last hero was just not true.  If everything works out in the end.  It's because all things make amends.

There was a concern like that a long time ago on the radio
about foods, too.

Some dietitian was talking on the radio and was asked
why were there so many other things said by others
in pamphlets, etc. about foods that seemed to be
different from what she was saying.

She said this country has free speech and so
people just say things as they want to but that we all
have to be careful about who we get the information from.

I went on TikTok and looked a video. A guy was talking
his favorite 3 lms baits. One he calls Senko. But other
posters said that's not a Senko. It's actually a plastic Gulp
night crawler. :2funny: :2funny:

I hate seeing how people net fish on the internet.  It's like no one knows how to net a fish correctly.  I always see people trying to scoop the fish with the net and fails.  Well eventually they do end up scooping the fish.
